CNAS will host a roundtable to discuss U.S. anticorruption efforts in the context of U.S. national security and foreign policy goals.
Many stakeholders are concerned that the progress of recent years (DOJ’s anti-kleptocracy work, FCPA enforcement, the Open Government Partnership, embassy-level anticorruption initiatives, security sector assistance reform, etc.) could lose support or be undone. Indeed last week Congress repealed a landmark SEC rule to prevent corruption in the extractive sector, mandated by Section 1504 of the Dodd-Frank Act.
The roundtable will bring together U.S. government representatives (civilian and military) from several agencies, and Congressional staff, academic, think tank, philanthropy, and NGO representatives.
